#1 – The Ritual of Solitude – This involves nothing more than ensuring that your daily schedule includes a mandatory period of peace.  It can last as little as fifteen minutes or as much as fifty, wherein you explore the healing power of silence and come to know who you really are.  Solitude and quiet connects you to your creative source and releases the limitless intelligence of the Universe.

You see, the mind is like a lake.  In our chaotic world, most people’s minds are not still.  We are full of inner turbulence.  However, by simply taking the time to be still and quiet every day, the lake of the mind becomes as smooth as a plate of glass.  This inner quietness brings with it a wealth of benefits including a deep sense of well-being, inner peace and boundless energy.  You will even sleep better and enjoy a renewed feeling of balance in your day-to-day activities.

“The core of your life is your purpose.  Everything in your life, from your diet to your career, must be aligned with your purpose if you are to act with coherence and integrity in the world.  If you know your purpose, your deepest desire, then the secret of success is to discipline your life so that you support your deepest purpose and minimize distractions and detours.” ~ David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

“Like accolades ought to be, the fulfilled life is a consequence, a gratifying byproduct. It’s what happens when you’re thinking about more important things. Climb the mountain not to plant your flag, but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air and behold the view. Climb it so you can see the world, not so the world can see you. Go to Paris to be in Paris, not to cross it off your list and congratulate yourself for being worldly. Exercise free will and creative, independent thought not for the satisfactions they will bring you, but for the good they will do others, the rest of the 6.8 billion–and those who will follow them. And then you too will discover the great and curious truth of the human experience is that selflessness is the best thing you can do for yourself. The sweetest joys of life, then, come only with the recognition that you’re not special. Because everyone is.” ~ David McCullough
